Project Description

Blind People's Association

The BPA runs the Rang Avdhoot Employment & Placement Department for Disabled since last 20 years BPA and works at placement of disabled and making them self-employed. Our Placement Officers got National Award in 2000 as Best Placement Officer. After completion of Education and Training we register the names of disabled with our placement department not only the internal students but outsiders are also allowed to register their names.

As with the best efforts of our placement officers who go in the Corporate sectors, Industries and Government departments where they find a suitable Job for the disabled children and convince the Employers to employ persons with disabilities.  However, India is a country where formal employment is only 15% and the rest are all occupied in the informal sector.  We realized that it is not easy to give employment to people with disabilities but it is more sustainable and easier to provide self-employment.
